Review - Wardrobe Malfunction by Samantha Towle

From New York Times bestselling author, Samantha Towle, comes a new standalone romantic comedy.

Vaughn West, Hollywood heartthrob, has been at the top of his game for years. He thinks he’s untouchable—until a betrayal brings him spiraling down. Now, everyone pities him, and if there’s one thing Vaughn hates, it’s pity.

After a few months of working his way through every available actress, pop star, model, and waitress in California, Vaughn needs to get his life back on track and focus on what he does best—making hit movies.

Charlotte Michaels is in love. Just not with one person.
Louis Vuitton…
Christian Dior…
And the list goes on.

Sadly, Charly’s limited bank account doesn’t allow her those luxuries, and the closest she gets are lucky finds in charity shops and working closely with some of those names in her job as a wardrobe assistant.

Now, Charly has landed the mother of all jobs—working on the new Vaughn West movie. Excited doesn’t even cut it.

Only things don’t go as planned, and it turns out that Vaughn is actually a jerk. A hot jerk, but a jerk nonetheless.

So, why do their clothes keep falling off whenever they’re around each other? And why can’t Charly keep her mind in the closet and off Vaughn?

Getting mixed up with a smart-mouthed, fashion-obsessed wardrobe assistant is the last thing Vaughn needs.

Getting mixed up with an arrogant, self-centered, obnoxious, jumped-up actor who has a lack of respect for fashion is the last thing Charly needs.

Things are about to get hot, dirty, and messy in Hollywood. Very messy. Especially if Charly’s closely guarded secret falls out of her closet.

My Review

I love Samantha Towle’s books, but I especially loved this one because it was laugh out loud funny. In case you didn’t know laugh out loud books are one of my favorites. I love fun books, but when an author can make me lol for reals, it just puts me a great mood when reading. 

Wardrobe Malfunction is pretty fantastic in that regard. Vaughn is an A-List actor who just ended a relationship with a Hollywood starlet after learning of her infinitely with his best friend. Vaughn isn’t typically a party guy, but after the break up he jumps into the party scene. In order to get the job that will make his career, he must clean up his party boy ways. 

Charly is a wardrobe assistance and is super excited to be working with Vaughn and on such a huge project. Vaughn is one of her favorite actors or celebrity crushes. We all have them and all I imagined was what it would be like to work with one of them. Naturally, I would be a nervous wreck and I guess that’s how I can completely relate to Charly’s wardrobe malfunction with Vaughn. 

After sticking Vaughn with a pin in a very painful, inappropriate place these two are on fire. Vaughn is attracted to Charly but must maintain a squeaky clean image for the press. Vaughn is back and forth, here and there with his feelings, and Charly doesn't really know what to expect but she isn't the kind of girl to back down. 

The banter, sexual chemistry and eventual friendship had me hooked. When I wasn't laughing I was excited to turn the page and see what would happen next. I loved how they made me laugh out loud, but also hopeful for more of a connection between the two of them. This story was more than a romantic comedy and it had plenty of feels. I loved all the other characters and how they added to the story. 

Anytime I can easily get immersed in the story and stay connected is a big win for me. This book is a super fast read because you didn't want to put it down. It’s not a short book, but read quickly and flowed perfectly. I definitely recommend when you are looking for a fun, sexy read.
